James Badge Dale Briefly Analyzes IRON MAN 3 Villains

Briefly breaking down the villainy of the Shane Black-directed threequel, “Eric Savin” actor James Badge Dale has commented on his work in Marvel's Iron Man 3 movie. Check it out!

While elaborating on the multiple blockbuster flicks he's worked on, including Flight, World War Z and The Lone Ranger, actor James Badge Dale briefly discussed his role in Marvel’s Iron Man 3 film. Portraying Eric Savin, one of multiple villains in the threequel, Dale clarifies that, “Ben Kingsley (The Mandarin) is the mouthpiece. Guy Pearce (Aldrich Killian) is the brain. I’m the muscle. Being in a big CGI action movie is a weird departure for me” he told ShowBizz411. “I’m more of a ‘put two guys in a room and we’ll just talk to each other’ style of actor. But I had a lot of fun. I learned to ride a horse. I got to beat up grown men in robot suits and shoot zombies with Brad Pitt.”

In the comics, Eric Savin, aliased “Coldblood,” was a soldier who got fatally injured and then was resurrected as an urban soldier cyborg. While it's unknown how faithful that backstory will be translated into Iron Man 3, James Badge Dale's and actor Ashley Hamilton's (Jack Taggert, Firepower) characters are seemingly the only villains we've yet to see via promotional material.

UPDATE: While we're on the subject of Iron Man 3 villains, Entertainment Weekly talked with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige yesterday. And once again explaining The Mandarin's interpretation & appearance in the film, Feige said, “Our version of this character wants to push those buttons in everyone, in every different country, all around the world to his own ends.” About Iron Patriot, Feige added that “It is not Norman Osborne in there, as opposed to the comics. We were inspired by that look and that suit, and again symbolism – what those icons mean.”

Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man? Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of “Tales of Suspense” (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with “The Invincible Iron Man” (#1) in May of 1968. “Iron Man 3” is presented by Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures & DMG Entertainment. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing & Jon Favreau, Louis D’Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Charles Newirth, Stan Lee & Dan Mintz are executive producers. The film hits May 3, 2013, & is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Inside News: Fing Fang Foom will slither it's way into Iron Man 3 in a minor capacity.

Nice to see an actor who admits this isn't his normal type of movie but is having fun instead of going through the motions.
DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 2:04 PM

DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 2:06 PM

DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 2:07 PM

Lets just hope this isn't another Spider-Man 3.
DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 2:07 PM
Oh and a cop in The Departed

I think that he's the soldier that the 'christmas shrine' will be for, and he'll be resuracted (sort of) using extremis and battle Iron Man.

DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 2:08 PM
@Thanos it's just that Wardell dude... if it's real it would be cool...but who knows right? : )
DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 2:09 PM
@Birdfist...I think that shrine is for a Bunch of people.
superotherside - 12/1/2012, 2:17 PM
Interesting. I hope they keep Mallen as the first Extremis soldier though.
IcemanX - 12/1/2012, 2:19 PM
James Badge Dale was in the trailer

DCMarvelFreshman - 12/1/2012, 2:23 PM
@IcemanX Had no idea that was him there. Great eye!
DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 2:26 PM
damn Ice!!! Maybe Iron Man doesn't catch him and from his injuries is resurrected as ...dun dun dun
NightForce - 12/1/2012, 2:56 PM
Maybe they'll combine his character with Mallen from the Extremis story. He'll be cybernetically modified with Extremis as a cyborg to fight Iron Man. I just don't wanna see him another suit because Stark needs to fight starting super humans now. The only super being hes fought in the movies was Thor.
DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 3:15 PM
Good idea Asgardian. I agree on the super villain front as well. They don't always have to be Iron Man specific villains in the future
DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 3:37 PM
@shitforbrains Worse. It will be worse. You may think the second one was the WORST, but that's your opinion, and that's o.k. But I doubt you have the foresight to reach your conclusion on the third movie which isn't out yet. Let alone post a comment without proofreading in the slightest.

I loved Iron Man 2. Wasnt perfect, but loved it anyway.

I was kind of hoping for Crimson Dynamo rather than Coldblood or Firepower, but after that trailer I trust Shane Black to pull it off.
mgeoff88 - 12/1/2012, 9:22 PM
So we get three villains for Iron Man to do some ass kciking? Sounds great to me.

@IcemanX Nice catch! That's the part in the trailer where the plane is attacked.

I'm guessing when he's jumping out of the plane something goes wrong and he's brought back to life as Coldblood.

3 Villains? IM2 could barely juggle two villains. Not really liking what i'm hearing about The Mandarin.
IgnurRant - 12/2/2012, 12:13 AM
With all the fantastical elements Marvel Studios uses, I was hoping for a traditional Mandarin. This version sounds like he was a member of the Ra's al Ghul's League of Shadows next to Bane. Personally, I always loved the image of plainly robed Mandarin kicking the sh*t outta of a fully armored Iron Man.

"Ben Kingsley (The Mandarin) is the mouthpiece. Guy Pearce (Aldrich Killian) is the brain."

Makes me wonder, will the Mandarin only serve as a "puppet," much akin to Ken Watanabe's "Ra's al Ghul"? Hmm...

As a side note, I still liked Iron Man 2, so I have no reason to worry about this one. :)

Didn't Chris Nolan already do this?

I actually forgot about him, didn't see him in the trailer
texarkana - 12/2/2012, 9:59 PM
It feels like it could be a spiderman 3 with two separate poorly rewritten versions of villains taking away from each other and offering no motivation or empathy. I hope the dark gritty appearance this trailer offers is exactly what I want: a pissed off down and out Tony Stark who goes toe to toe with a more than worthy adversary.
